“Allies Design have been instrumental in the evolution of the ‘Great British Bake Off’ and ‘Great British Sewing Bee’ brands- from the conception and execution of style guides to the design of several of our tie-in books, they have been highly creative, always responsive and a joy to work with. I would have no hesitation in recommending Susanna and her team.”
— Rupert Frisby, Director of Legal & Commercial Affairs, Love Productions

Christmas


Our fourth book for the GBBO brand is a celebration of all things festive, so our design needed to reflect this. From the sparkling gold elements on the cover to the Scandinavian inspired typography, it was a pleasure to work on such a fun, seasonal book. With beautiful imagery by Laura Edwards, imaginative prop styling by Polly Webb Wilson and delicious food styling by Lizzie Kamenetzky this book truly celebrates the season of good will!

 
 
 
“Susanna and her team are a true delight to work with. They are always happy to help and quick to turn things around — we couldn’t have asked for a better team.”
— Louise McKeever, Illustrated Editor, Penguin Random House

Everyday


Drawing inspiration from the idea that this is a recipe book to be used everyday, we incorporated practical step by step guides, detailed illustrations of the equipment to be used in each chapter, and handwritten ingredients lists - suggesting it is a well loved, working recipe book. The photography was focused on the everyday life of a baker; warm muffins straight from the oven, syrup drizzling from a spoon and hands dusted in flour. This is a recipe book to inspire and engage the everyday baker.

“We loved working with Susanna and her team. For Great British Bake Off: Everyday, Susanna created something very beautiful and unique. From the beginning, she had a clear vision for this book, and she and her team executed it perfectly — and to some very tight deadlines. A book to be proud of.”
— Muna Reyal, Editorial Director, Penguin Random House

Winter Kitchen

A recipe book celebrating the sharing of seasonal culinary treats from autumn through to winter. With a rich muted colour palette, rustic and comforting styling and heartening recipes. It was a joy to work with photographer Nassima Rothacker, prop stylist Polly Webb-Wilson and food stylist Annie Nichols to create the beautiful images.
